Quote from Michael I. Kraus 

"When governments use the judiciary to recover “damage,” the courts intrude on the regulatory and revenue responsibilities of legislatures. And when lawsuits based on tenuous legal theories impose high costs on defendants, due process gives way to a form of extortion, with public officials serving as bagmen for private contingency fee lawyers."

Quote by:
Michael I. Kraus and Robert A. Levy, (Michael Kraus is professor of law at George Mason University in Arlington, VA, and Robert A. Levy is a senior fellow of constitutional studies at the Cato Institute), in So Sue Them, Sue Them, CATO COMMENTARY, June 7, 1999.
